Spend a week with The Folk School learning about our town and integrating art into daily life!

Life drawing skills will be sharpened daily with subject-specific exercises in a variety of materials such as oil and chalk pastels, as well as graphite, charcoal and crayons. Campers will also have a chance to learn several art making processes such as printmaking, sculpture, and painting in traditional mediums including, acrylic, watercolors and ink wash.
